What we do
Slow Food works around the world to protect food biodiversity, build links between producers and consumers, and raise awareness of some of the most pressing topics affecting our food system.
These initiatives range from community activities organized by local convivia, to larger projects, campaigns and events coordinated by Slow Food’s national offices and international headquarters.
- Saving endangered foods and defending gastronomic traditions through our biodiversity projects
- Teaching the pleasure of food and how to make good, clean and fair choices through food and taste education
- Celebrations of the gastronomic traditions of Europe and Asia, artisanal cheese and fish, and meetings of our worldwide networks in our international events
- From animal welfare to land grabbing, addressing themes that we care about
- Connecting people passionate about changing the food system through our international network
In 2012 Slow Food set itself a clear objective: to create 10,000 food gardens in Africa, identify 10,000 Ark of Taste products and count 10,000 local groups (convivia and food communities) in the network.
